The Power of Flowers

Twelve Flowers with Healing Powers…..

I adore flowers and being in the garden and outside – the energy and power of nature is truly healing and the power of flowers I believe is incredible. No one can disagree that flowers bring so much joy and wonder into our world and I was lucky enough to be given The Healing Power of Flowers by Claire Bowen and I just loved it.

Flowers are one of Mother Nature’s most potent healing tools, and they can be found all over the world. The “personality” of each variety varies in order to benefit both physical and emotional well-being.

In addition to their aesthetic and aromatic benefits, flowers have been used medicinally for thousands of years due to their extraordinary healing properties. Herbal remedies are more commonly recommended by doctors than you might expect. There are countless plants, herbs, and flowers that can be used to treat a variety of ailments and health issues, including heart failure and broken bones. Make an appointment with your GP before attempting any new treatment. You never know, a natural remedy may be the answer to some of the health issues you’ve been experiencing!

Whether you’re working with flowers in your own garden, or specially purchased to heal a specific situation, they will bring more emotional, physical, and spiritual

Did you know that some flowers have the power to heal you? Healing flowers have been used for centuries to help fight off a variety of common ailments.

  1. Rosesare high in vitamin C and can be used to create a syrup or tincture for colds and cough relief. As an anti-inflammatory, they are great for joint and muscle pain relief. When it comes to reducing puffiness and redness, the anti-inflammatory properties of rose can help. Rose also contains natural oils that lubricate the skin, reducing redness and dullness.

Lavender is beneficial for depression, insomnia, mood swings, and stress. It clears your mind, alleviates anxiety, and restores emotional balance.
  1. Evening Primrose offers a seed oil that has high levels of fatty acids that are known to balance hormones and increase blood circulation. It can also be used to ease stress and anxiety. Evening primrose oil is thought to provide a variety of health benefits, some of which have been proven by research and others that have yet to be proven. Benefits include alleviating PMS and menopausal symptoms, assisting with dry skin and dry eyes, and reducing acne-related inflammation.
  1. St. John’s Wort is often used to treat mental health concerns such as depression, in the form of an oil or tincture. It is also often used to ease the symptoms of PMS and IBS but MUST be used with the support of your GP if you are on other medications.
